SmartBug Media Is Now HubSpot Platform Enablement Accredited

March 23, 2023

By Kody Van Sistine

As a leading provider of digital marketing solutions, SmartBug Media has done it again! We are thrilled to announce that we have earned HubSpot Platform Enablement accreditation—making us one of the few organizations around the globe to hold this recognition. We understand how important marketing technology is for modern companies, and we owe our success in developing top-tier campaigns to our ability to capitalize on the latest advancements in industry-related tools. 

But what does it mean to be an accredited HubSpot agency?

This HubSpot accreditation validates SmartBug's achievements in driving high user adoption rates through customized HubSpot training and management engagements. We had to demonstrate aptitude in providing strategic and operational guidance, data-driven decision-making, training design, and classroom management. 

"Because the HubSpot platform is utilized more broadly across revenue teams, these organizations can rely on accreditations such as this Platform Enablement Accreditation to ensure they are being guided and trained by a solutions partner with seasoned professionals who deeply understand HubSpot and its user," said SmartBug CEO Jen Spencer. "This latest accreditation is a testament to the value we at SmartBug place on continued learning and operational excellence."

It's not easy to earn this recognition. To even be considered, we put together:

  • A combined 31 certifications across a team of five SmartBug employees
  • Two "artifacts" (documentation) from engagements with enterprise clients with at least 20 customer relationship management (CRM) users, including training plans (with customized training curriculum) and change management plans
  • A 20-minute video for a hypothetical client that presents a hypothetical training and enablement plan
  • Two Google Slides presentations for the hypothetical client
  • A quiz for hypothetical client training
  • A reference from a client that has received onboarding and training from SmartBug

SmartBug has now earned all three currently offered HubSpot accreditations; the other two are Advanced HubSpot CRM Implementation accreditation and HubSpot Onboarding accreditation.

This recognition is another example of how SmartBug has become the go-to partner for businesses leveraging HubSpot for their organizational growth. We provide white-glove service so our clients can customize their business architecture with an array of advanced integrations, installations, and setup capabilities.

Our certified experts get our clients up and running quickly by setting up the HubSpot platform, migrating data from existing systems, and providing essential company data such as email templates, workflows, list segmentations, and more. This level of service ensures that HubSpot is used to its full potential.

We take pride in helping our clients reach their goals with HubSpot. We ensure all data is organized effectively in one place, which helps clients run more effective campaigns that reach the right customers at the right time. With our help, they can maximize their marketing efforts while freeing up valuable resources to concentrate on other business areas.

This accreditation is only possible thanks to our team’s hard work, dedication, and enthusiasm in helping our clients succeed with their digital marketing strategies. We are thrilled to celebrate this significant milestone as part of our journey as a trusted partner for global organizations.

Established in 2008, SmartBug is celebrating 15 successful years of outstanding digital marketing services. We've seen incredible growth and accomplished a lot during this time, becoming known for our innovative approach to helping clients reach their goals.
